Islamic hip-hop show, men to be separate from women: Zain Bhika live in Malawi

Organizers of the live music show for a renowned international Muslim song writer and singer Zain Bhikha scheduled for tomorrow Saturday at Robins Park in Blantyre and at Cross Roads Hotel in the capital Lilongwe on Sunday say there are expecting patrons to behave and dress as required in Islam.

Zain Bhika is a South African singer and song writer who is renowned worldwide for his Islamic nasheed. He is also engaged in social welfare projects in South Africa as well as international initiatives to educate through songs.

Zain Bhika is a South African singer and song writer who is renowned worldwide for his Islamic nasheed. He is also engaged in social welfare projects in South Africa as well as international initiatives to educate through songs.

Communications Manager or Classic Events, Bashir Amin told Nyasa Times on Friday that although people from other faiths are most welcome to the show, they are not expecting anyone to behave or dress in a manner that would annoy others.

“It’s certain that those who will come drunk will be denied entry. We expect Muslim women to dress as they always do. And it would be surprising for women to come in extremely miniskirts or dresses.”

Amin says it has also been arranged that women will sit separate from men.

“Although this is an Islamic event but people from faiths are also welcome. Zain Bhika music tackles all aspect of life and is famous among both Muslims and non-Muslims,” said Amin.

He has assured patrons that they should not worry about security saying necessary security measures have been put in place.

The shows have been organised to raise funds for the 2015 Malawi Muslim Awards function.

Zain Bhikha is a South African singer-songwriter who performs Islamic nasheed songs. Associated with other Muslim musicians, including Yusuf Islam and Dawud Wharnsby, Bhikha has collaborated on albums and also released several solo albums.

This year, Zain is celebrating 20 years of his nasheed career. He has travelled to UK, USA, Canada, France and other European and Asian countries.

    BUT YOU the organizers…do u really know or understand what HIP HOP is all about? If people like NAS, REDMAN, LL COOL J, MOBB DEEP, WU TANG CLAN hear what you are planning to do in the name of HIP HOP….AAAAAAHHHHH…
    By the way, why mixxxing Islam and HIOP HOP? Hip Hop is so complex and at times the culture in hip hop brings fun with it to both males or females. But Islam….we can see any fun it.

    Odi uko!! no wonder you can’t beat westernization of the world with these restrictive customs. Nanga munthu ukavina bwanji ndi amayi akwanu pamene mwakhala posiyana? is this entertainment or a funeral? No wonder u sometimes bomb each other because you repress a lot of emotion – let the body be free and let it express itself in different manifestations such as dress. Pepani ngati ndakunyozani koma kumaonako zinthu from another angle nthawi zina

  24. opportunist says:
